With that said - I tend to prefer speyside scotches (honey/leather/vanilla/spice)…"
"My recommendation would be Glenlivet 15 Year Old French Oak Reserve.
You should be able to find it for around $50-$70 (It's $75 or so here in Canada).
An excellent bottle of scotch without breaking the bank too much.
Be sure to pop back in…"
"Agreed. Go out and try some first. I didn't like scotch until I tried some 18 year Caol Ila. It's extremely smoky...kinda tastes smoked. That very prominent smoky flavor somehow eased me into the scotch taste."
"First do you like scotch? If not don’t blow your money.
My general rule is that they need to be neat, single, legal, and preferably old enough to drink themselves.
To translate that.
Drink it straight, no ice or water in the…"
"I'd recommend Gragganmore as it is my personal favorite. That said. I'll add my voice to those who say that unless you particularly like scotch, spend your money elsewhere, like on a good Irish whiskey (Jameson). They cost less and…"
"David—congratulations on your graduation! Engineering is a tough slog, so yes, that accomplishment deserves a special celebration. And on the roof of the eng building! I like it!

"If you don't drink a lot of Scotch you may find that the more expensive brands are awfully smokey tasting. Scotch is basically a whiskey which has had some ingredients dried over a peat fire, thus the smokey taste. Spending $50 to…"

"I have been swimming recreationally basically since I was a kid and, in recent years, for exercise for 30 +/- years (62 now). I do it because I love the feeling I get from it but I also try to make it beneficial physically by working at it.…"
Hello Gentlemen.I'm very excited to say that I'm down about 50 pounds in the last 5 or so months. I'm still losing. I was very overweight, and I decided to do something about it.
